The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:
On March 4, at approximately 6:45 a.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to The Drug Store, 872 Sam Houston Jones Parkway, Moss Bluff, in reference to a burglary alarm being activated.
Upon arrival, deputies discovered the deadbolt of the front door was broken. After deputies checked the store for possible suspects, the pharmacy owner arrived and was able to run a drug inventory report which revealed over $4,500 worth of narcotics medications, including approximately 7000 Hydrocodone tablets, 700 Morphine tablets, 575 Oxycodone tablets, 575 Oxycontin, and 130 Soma tablets, had been stolen.
During further investigation, deputies reviewed the pharmacy surveillance video which captured a white man, wearing a gray or tan suit, a clear mask, baseball hat, and sunglasses, entering the store and jumped over the pharmacy counter. After stealing the medication and placing it in a black trash bag, the man fled the store.
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is asking the public for assistance in identifying this man. Anyone with information regarding the burglary or the man shown in the video is asked to call CPSO at 491-3605 or Crimestoppers at 439-2222.
CPSO Detective Darrell Fontenot is the lead investigator on this case.
